    Are you an excellent facilitator?  Do you want to show off your skills and receive audience feedback?  Join us as a participant in the third annual Trainer Throwdown on August 8th. 

     

    The name is based on those hokey staged wrestling events where they start with eight men in a ring and all but one will be “throwndown” or eliminated. In the ATD Kansas City Chapter 3rd Annual Trainer Throwdown, YOU, members of our chapter, will compete against each other to see who can “throw-down” their best training technique, tool, or method. Four competitors will have 12 – 15 minutes to prove their stuff and take away the title of 2017 Top Trainer.

    Upon the completion of this event, the competitors will have the additional benefit of:

    ·         Enjoying a FREE chapter meeting

    ·         Winning prizes

    ·         Showing us what they’re made of! 

    To throw your name in the ring as a competitor, click here to submit your name and describe your 15 minute session.

    ENGAGE is a six-month program that combines group interactions through face-to-face meetings and partnership exercises with one-on-one partnership experiences. The program will allow ATDKC chapter members the opportunity to partner with a Mentor or Mentee in order to share knowledge of the Training and Development industry…just one of the many benefits of a mentoring partnership.

    If you are interested in participating in this pilot launch as either an Engage Mentor or Mentee, please complete this survey: https://atdkc.wufoo.com/forms/zgvmqvs0os00sv/.

    You can expect to receive a confirmation email with further details. Please feel free to email mentoring@tdkc.org with any questions.

    Thank you for your interest…we look forward to engaging with you!

    Be among the first to know about the newest certification in the talent development field: the Associate Professional in Talent Development (APTD). The ATD Certification Institute is launching this new certification to meet the needs of early-career professionals and those with a narrower focus in their talent development work.

    This session will include:

    • an overview of the APTD program and how it can help professionals distinguish themselves from their peers
    • how APTD serves as a stepping stone to the profession’s premier credential, the CPLP
    • the core competencies of talent development covered by APTD, based on The ATD Competency Model
    • timing of the first administration of the APTD exam.

    Join us to learn more about this exciting new credential available from The ATD Certification Institute. 

    Want to learn more about our newest certification—the Associate Professional in Talent Development (APTD)? Register for our free webcast on March 30 at 1 p.m. ET.

    We’re pleased to let you know that the new certification program being developed by the ATD Certification Institute has a name: the Associate Professional in Talent Development (APTD). Thanks to many of you for helping us reach this important milestone.

    Associate Professional in Talent Development

    This new program will provide our colleagues who wish to focus on a few areas of expertise or who are newer to the field a way to differentiate themselves in a highly competitive talent market and demonstrate expertise to employers or clients:

    • Registration for the APTD program will begin in June.
    • The first exam will be offered in September.

    The new APTD certification is more narrowly focused than the Certified Professional in Learning and Performance (CPLP), our field’s premier certification. It will test knowledge on three primary areas of expertise from The ATD Competency Model, along with evaluating learning impact and the global mindset foundational competency.

    Again, we want to offer special thanks to the nearly 500 individuals (ATD members, CPLPs, and others) who provided input for the name of the APTD program and who took part in the recent validation survey on what should be tested on the APTD exam. The development of this new program has relied on your engagement and ideas.

    We hope you will continue to provide input and share your expertise to help us shape the APTD certification. More information about how to get involved and a list of frequently asked questions (FAQs) can be found on the ATD website.

    Thank you for being part of our global community of talent development professionals. With your engagement, together we are creating a world that works better!

    Best regards,

    Tony Bingham
    President, ATD CI
